Holiday Meme Gacked From saavikam77 Brilliant Idea! Let's Keep It Going!  
Holiday Wishes Meme

Step One

Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me.") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD.") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not stories or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two

Surf around your friends list (or friends friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use — or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free — do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf — to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not — it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

My Wishes

ETA: All of the icons I'm talking about below are based on the MK Lois/CR Clark-Kal-El. *LOL* I forget that I need to say things like that! *blush* Thanks everyone for their offers, but the SR-verse stuff wouldn't work. *kicks self*

1 - I really need a handful of manip icons that I always forget to request. I still don't have a Lois/Richard (!) icon, I'd love a great new 'sexy Clois', one with Lois and Kala, and one with Clark and Lizard-Breath...err, Jason. 

2 - Someone who has any vid-making talent at all to make me a better trailer for LS. I really think mine is lacking.

3 - A list of Margot's Con appearances for the year so I can try again to finally meet her in person. *whine*

4 - I desperately need an 'Icon Whore' icon.  *glares* Stop laughing! If I knew a way to get 200 of them, I would.

5 - A new MP3 player. It doesn't even have to be an IPod. Just something that can take more than 23 songs. *headdesk*

6 - To get confirmation on Man of Steel's clearance to shoot or the shot to either write the screenplay or have both of us join forces with Saavi and do it as a team. (What do you think of that, Ella? ;)) 

7 - Any Original Movieverse icons and fic. Doesn't have to be any certain topic. Just spoil me, people! ;) XD

8 - An idea of how to spoil my wonderful F-list back for all the joy and support you've given me in the last year. Honestly. Get this meme up so I know!

9 - I really want this and I was supposed to be sent order information when it was available, only to just find out that it's been out for quite some time: La Femme Nikita: Inside Section One

#6 - Brilliant idea! :D With the three of us, Bryan and Brandon wouldn't know what hit them. ^_~

You can snitch my Clark and Jason icon, I think it was made by januaried.

Oh, and houseofel has *tons* of original movieverse icons, as well as SR and Brandon icons. Seriously, go look!
Lois: Lois and Jasonkalalanekent on November 10th, 2007 02:46 pm (UTC)
I agree! I'd love to have all three of us plotting! Look out, Hollywood! :D

As to the icons, I really need to get manips. I frequent both sites and have tons, but I really need more LS-specific icons. I know, I'm greedy. *blush*
januaried: SIII clark dork dancingjanuaried on November 10th, 2007 04:34 pm (UTC)
Nope, not mine. I've barely even started making SR graphics... It's an adorable icon though!

Oh, and [info]houseofel has *tons* of original movieverse icons, as well as SR and Brandon icons. Seriously, go look!

Seconded! Her SR/Brandon icons are brilliant.

I know her work! The only reason none of them are on the userpics at the moment is that they're on my computer! *headdesk*

1) and 4) - I love requests! *g* Just point me in the right direction and off I'll go.

2) I love making vids but I'm seriously lacking in footage and my computer is so slow (not to mention Windows Movie Maker crashing literally every two minutes) that I've only managed to finish one (Star Wars, not Superman). I would love to make you a trailer - whenever I read a good fic, I get ideas for a trailer - but it would take me way too long. You're probably better off asking scoobycookies or kalel1029 (I have no idea if they do requests, though).

7) I'm working on it, I'm working on it... of my icon-izing STM project, I'm about half done with Krypton. I keep getting distracted by other stuff. As for fic, I have a whole OM trilogy planned out - it just takes me a really really really long time to actually write and update. Here's the prologue. From last year. Yeah. *hides*

Anyway, I like this meme! Making other people happy makes oneself happy ;D
Lois: Lois Lovekalalanekent on November 11th, 2007 01:29 am (UTC)
Awww! *hugs* I didn't just mean you, silly!

I'd love to ask Scoob, but I've actually afraid of being that forward. That and I don't know if she's still reading. I'd love to see something by the two of them. Then again, I'd love to see what the fans could do. I love fan-made promotions.

As to the requests on one, I don't have any set idea of what they look like. I usually give Kat all the creative rope in the world. Let me talk to her and see if it's okay that I give out the links to the galleries, which will add to the material you have to work from. Just tell me what you need.

*SQUEE!* Thank you SO much, rinzy! *hugs*
januariedjanuaried on November 11th, 2007 05:32 am (UTC)
LOL, I know you didn't mean just me, but I would love to fulfill some of your requests when I have time! They're fun! *hugs back*

Fan-made promotions are just awesome. Have you seen kalel1029's trailers? Best. Thing. Ever. Seriously, they are amazing.

Okey dokey...*is a dork* sounds good. I can't quite picture Richard/MK!Lois in my head, so I'd love to either see what Kat comes up with or do some myself. You have Tom Welling as Jason, right? I was just looking at some of acampbell's picspams from earlier seasons of Smallville and thinking that I like young!TW!Clark better than older!TW!Clark. Young!TW would definitely be good as Jason.

Okay, El Jay break time is over, back to the homework! ;P
Lois: Jason Garen Lanekalalanekent on November 11th, 2007 05:56 am (UTC)
Well, I've been okayed for giving you the 'Hall Pass' for the Galleries. You likely have these, but this is my secret stash that Kat and I use. Feel welcome to use anything in the three galleries you like.


There are a few pics in the galleries that might fit better into a MK/JM icon than expected. I just wish I would have asked for one while they were still a couple. *so embarrassed*

And yes to the Jason question. Season one and two are the best for him, although I'll occasionally steal a later one if I like it well enough.

januariedjanuaried on November 18th, 2007 04:46 am (UTC)
Argh, I keep forgetting to reply to this! Sorry for the extreme lateness. I'm honored to be let into your galleries! I have most of those pictures, but not the Kala and Jason ones, which will come in handy making manips for you guys. Thank you so much, I really appreciate new picture sources. *hugs*

Oooh, just thought of something. I've been making Krypton icons for my big STM project, and this one just randomly popped into my head. You can have it before I post it (although it may not be the final version), as a 'thank you' and because I'm sure you'll appreciate it...

Re: ♥
Awww! I can honestly say I love him for once! How perfect!


And you're welcome! I know you'll get some use out of those you can use. And I'm so excited to see how your project turns out!
Barbara: Queen Babshtbthomas on November 10th, 2007 07:04 pm (UTC)
I actually have a Lois and Richard icon on my hard drive... do you want it? It's not a manip, though.

But I hope you get these other wishes!
Lois: SV Lois-Clark the Dumbasskalalanekent on November 10th, 2007 08:18 pm (UTC)
Actually, Lois is the dumbass this time around. The Lois and Richard I need is Kidder/Marsden. Which is great, since I got around to it once the Richois was over. *headdesk*

But thanks so much for the offer, B!

How did I know you'd pick that up? *kiss* I'd love love them so much. I swear, icons are like Pringles...

Re: For you...
Aww! They're wonderful! And now that I have the new computer up and running, I'm putting this up as soon as possible! And look at that Bagel! *hugs her Big Sister* Thanks so much, Caroline!
